Apple has added a new page on its Web site devoted to all the jobs that the company has created, both the 80,000 in its own company and the two million total jobs it says it has created in the broader economy.

The move follows comments Tim Cook made earlier on Wednesday stressing the role that Apple has played. Cook also announced Apple's plans to invest $1 billion in a new fund designed to spur advanced manufacturing in the U.S.

On the new site, Apple offers a state-by-state breakdown of the jobs, which include 450,000 attributable to its U.S. suppliers and 1.5 million in app development. It says 90,000 supplier and manufacturing jobs have been created in just the last year.

Why now? Apple is looking to show itself as a major source of U.S. jobs even though final assembly of nearly all its products are done overseas.

Here are some of the charts Apple uses to show its efforts:

The Supreme Court on Monday denied a request from Pennsylvania's Republican Party to shorten the deadlines for mail-in ballots in the state. Thanks to the court's 4-4 deadlock, ballots can be counted for several days after Election Day.

Why it matters: It's a major win for Democrats that could decide the fate of thousands of ballots in a crucial swing state that President Trump won in 2016. The court's decision may signal how it would deal with similar election-related litigation in other states.
